Well, its been done! Go for it!

I know its cool to see better numbers on a rig, I had mine up to 2.4ghz on the i7 and ram around 2000 mhz with the timings a little slower at 8-8-9 but had to go with 2c's so its was kinda pointless ... Talk about numbers though, the power draw was around 545watts with surges up close to 700 watts!

Heh Heh!!
Me too! I had it up to 4.5 when the heater duct fell off and it was freezing in the office, that was without setting up the ram and vid cards, it ran prime95 for an hour then I noticed the mosfet/vreg was close to 100c and I had that problem before so I backed it off. I had just got a little fan in for it when the NB cooler fell apart and I had to leave my house. I haven't been able to set up my computer since then and I'm either on my tablet or lappy <when I can afford cricket broadband.

I did get the new mobo though so I'll be getting back to all those projects not too long from now. June 6th is only a week+ away! Can You say Freedom Boys and Girls? Very good, I knew you can! All I need is Aretha singing the freedom song!

I got a question a few question for my fellow scout owners.

So I'm looking for more air flow in my case but when I installed a fan on the side window it creates this humming sound. I'm not sure if it's from my fan or its because of the vent slits the window has. Anyone else have this problem? although I was planning on installing a new side-window anyways with not vent slits.

where else can I install extra fans? I've seen people install one where the 5.25 slots are but don't exactly know how to mount it on there. Maybe install one on the left side of the HDD cage?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

It is indeed the slits in the side panel that creates that noise, a few members have cut them out.

Be glad you got it done, here's what happens when you don't:



Upper timing chain guide broke due to excessive timing chain slack. With the upper guide broke, the timing chain jumps off the intake camshaft sprocket, major damage ensues.

It is a very common Problem with the CMSS. The bigger Vent slits have wind velocity noise.. Most people are changing windows for this very reason.

For now just slow down the fans with a Fan Speed Reducer.

you can do this by switching your power wires to the 5 volt

molex connection or you can run both fans on in series with your wiring

or you can buy two of these...

Looks like unimatrixzero covered the noise, but as for the extra fan, the most common place is in the 5.25" bay, it takes 3 of them. just take a flat peice of plastic and cut a hole in the middle and mount the fan to that with screws. i'll attach a pic of this. also, if you want even more, i've mounted a fan at the bottom between the PSU and the drive cage, and installed with it's own filter on that. that leaves me with a total of 6 fans in my case. 3 intake (front bottom, front 5.25" drive bays, bottom of case) and 3 exhaust (2 on the radiator at the top back, and 1 on the back top).
